House # 22 – The Last One


House # 22 – The Last One


This is the house we live in now, and have for over 20 years. Looks like that first photo of the house and yard was taken in the winter or something as there are no leaves on the tree.

This house has three bedrooms, a living room/dining room all in one big area, a smallish kitchen, and two baths and a garage. We’ve put a shed in the back yard, too.

The second photo is a silhouette of a coyote and a cactus that are up on the front white wall. There is a weathered wooden bench below.

The third photo is showing part of the front of the house and is brick. There are actually four cats on the porch when I took this picture. There is our large fruitless Mulberry tree, and a weathered wooden bench under it. Thanks to our former neighbors for building the benches for us!

The fourth photo shows looking from our front yard over to the east and you can see part of the playa lake.


What to say about the memories of this house – many and of course we are still making them as we live here. We’ve had great neighbors over the years and everyone watches out for everyone else. (Kelly and DB – we miss you living next door!)

This house was built in the 70s and had only one owner before us, and we met them. Nice people, in fact the Mr. was one of my daughter’s teachers in college. So nothing strange about that … but … now for the spooky parts!

I’ve written on this blog about some of the ghostly happenings here before. If you’re interested here are the links:

There are lots more smaller incidents over the years. My house ghost loves to keep us guessing. 🙂

Weathered wood.

I like the look of weathered wood. This is wood that has been out in the weather for a long time. It’s been through scorching heat waves, torrential rains, hail storms, and whatever else the weather throws at it. The wood can be old fence posts or slats, or barn siding, building pallets, or driftwood. It’s all weathered the weather.

There’s a certain look to weathered wood. It has turned a silvery gray, for the most part. It has aged, and aged well.

Lots of wooden projects can be done with this wood. People make all sorts of things, from whimsical photo frames, to beautiful furniture. I have a few pieces, myself. Our neighbor did a lot of wood projects. We have a couple of outdoor benches, and a nightstand table. I really like the nightstand table. It has a shelf underneath, and a table top. There is also a wood framed mirror that tilts. Thank you DB! 🙂
